'Newcomers' that look to make a musical splash in 2007

Most of them haven't released their first albums in this country. But that hasn't stopped the world's early adopters from murmuring their names with awe. Below we bring a few singers and musicians, poised to splash down on our shores, each graced and cursed with advance buzz. Consider them music's new faces of `07.

The View

Album: Hats Off to Buskers (release date March 13).

Sound: Brisk and catchy punk-pop, fired by the singer's blatant Scottish brogue. Even their ballads have kick as well as melodic flair.

Background: The four high-spirited lads (average age: 18) grew up in Dundee, Scotland, where they played Sex Pistols and Squeeze covers. Their own songs land in the garage-punk zone of the Undertones or Libertines.

Prognosis: If the world comes to its senses, the View will become the Arctic Monkeys of '07.
